Julia Kay, co-founder of Great Wrap chats to us about how we can make cling wrap GREAT again!
Great Wrap has created Australia's first certified compostable cling wrap - it’s not only made from food waste but it also contains zero plastic. Great Wrap makes residential wrap (the sandwich wrapping kind), catering wrap and pallet wrap (the stuff heaps of things get wrapped in for transport).
You might think cling wrap is a niche issue but we use 150,000 tonnes of cling wrap per year in Australia alone - which is crazy when you think about how light cling wrap is. Soon the technology will be expanded to replace other plastics so we can stop adding to the 9 billion tonnes of the stuff that’s been created throughout history, which is sadly all still here on earth!
Julia, together with her husband Jordy Kay, have created a business that cleverly blends their respective backgrounds, a strong passion for design and an even bigger passion for creating a sustainable product.
In this episode we cover:
